Coronavirus - COVID19: Service information
Thank you for continuing to travel with First Bus. Our staff have all worked very hard to ensure that you can travel with confidence across our services. #LetsGetThereTogether
Following the latest Government update, we will be making further changes to our timetables to facilitate the reopening of schools and easing of restrictions. We are working hard to implement services within the Government guidelines. Full details will be published to the website and social media in early March. Thank you for your patience.
Service changes from week commencing Sunday 24th January 2021.
Due to the lockdown in place across the country, our services levels are being revised from next week, to reflect the current demand for travel.
On Monday to Friday, most services will run to Saturday level of service during the daytime, with additional early morning and early evening journeys added.
The majority of weekend timetables will remain unchanged, with the exception of the Saturday evening timetable on service 100, and our Essex Airlink services (X10 and X30) which will run to a revised timetable on every day of the week.
We’ve got each stage of your journey covered so that you can arrive safely at your destination.

Supporting the national effort with the NHS Test & Trace App:
We would like to encourage all passengers travelling with us to download the NHS Covid-19 Track and Trace app. Anyone aged 16 or over who lives in England or Wales can use the app. The app allows you to report symptoms, order a Coronavirus test and check into venues.
How do I access them?
Both of these apps are designed to help us protect each other and reduce the spread of coronavirus.
The England and Wales NHS COVID-19 app is free to download from the App Store and Google Play.
